We no longer dare to set foot in the Palais Salam in Taroudant . The welcome, if we can call it that, was provided by a dragon disguised as a woman. A happy change of style had briefly occurred: this legendary hotel had regained its luster, at least in the plate of its restaurant. But patatras: the legend has vanished. If the walls remain, sublime although in decrepitude, the restoration has become arbitrary.

A passage in November 2015 was alarming. On a sign placed at the entrance, the employees announced that they had not been paid for several months and that as a result some of them were on strike.

A unique charm

Former residence of the king of Taroudant, the Palais Salam is nestled in the ramparts of the other Red City and is part of the kasba, hence the unique charm that continues to emerge despite everything. It is easily found, at the main crossroads outside the walls, 45 minutes after leaving the Jardin aux Etoiles.

Atmosphere, atmosphere ...

The Salam Palace has fallen so low, as evidenced by certain opinions broadcast on Tripadivor , that one can fear for the very existence of this jewel. Such a waste!

The fact remains that, at night, one still feels there floating like an air of magic. We wouldn't be surprised to see the ghost of Marguerite Yourcenar appear around the edge of an alley . Atmosphere, atmosphere ...
